Supports in which the president's approaching the ailing economy.
Democratic don't suspect who voted vote for the stimulus bill and the other spending bill -- -- give it a congress -- was good have you.
Thanks Neil you know what's weird about this spending bill congressman you know just the night before right the president is saying we've got to.
And tighten our belts we've got to be disciplined -- let the American people know we we can control ourselves and and well let's not do -- the same -- way.
Wham bam thank you -- the next day you guys write off on a budget that -- bill that it increases spending over 8% from the prior year and is loaded with 8000 earmarks.
What did you do in the -- I felt very good to vote for this bill because one year ago in the budget resolution which passed the house.
We were actually.
One point three billion dollars underneath that budget resolution we kept to our word I think you notice that lets you tour -- -- sign outside of citizens of the 8% over what it was the prior.
Yeah yeah absolutely if you go back and really how much we -- yes sir I don't know the average American family congressman is seeing their budget -- about one point 31 point 4% this year over last year and you've done them almost eight times Adam.
But what the budget resolution dead at a time we were in this economic crisis -- actually said we would spend in this year mandatory and discretionary three point 013.
Trillion dollars we are actually one point three billion dollars under that.
And so actually we -- to what.
We said all right so you look at.
You know that is Democrats maybe not you specifically -- But Democrats that Republicans what they love this work in these earmarks and all of the local state house what was it.
And and I'm just wondering you know that's the president night before it's not to survive this thing on -- -- -- -- wasn't -- that.
-- hello -- you know so what happened not yet that you guys -- going to be watching each -- earmark.
You know I was pretty proud two years ago after having left the navy I came in here and we actually cut the earmarks.
By the amount of money in last year's budget by 45%.
Now this year.
We only cut another 5% we didn't cut it for almost 15% over what had been.
I would vote tomorrow.
For a bill that said no earmarks.
Want to know why people think hey hey look the president you know yeah it does he was right that's your market is stupid we look ridiculous Republicans still because they -- -- it.
But everyone just set let that -- Now I don't think everybody said on what the heck that thing is is that we couldn't get the budget down -- four months into it.
It might -- like earmarks luck I'd rather everything went to a proper grant program and I -- hold my dear I don't know if you don't just I wanna see what ten miles I wanna see you get on that.
Like psychology at and that I -- and I gather at the starting group and an almost certain that the coaches and what the and that's that you guys do it right.
That can you name -- another time.
We you've seen a program cut by 50% in two years as we did the earmark system in real terms.
Diallo on its arms around her uncertain grabbing me she's getting high marks in this one -- really know it.
You -- 50%.
Cotton a government program by 50% in one year what have I -- what we -- thrilled when we got what program was cut 50%.
All the earmarks that's basically -- -- it's now gotten earmarks you probably are 50% less spending and -- continuity of Indy.
In the amount of -- total amount of money.
You could make -- 9010 does not mention how much money.
We cut it almost 50% from two years ago maybe one other government so called program that that's been done by the way that other eight point 8%.
Let me tell idea I was dismayed when President Bush's budget -- rise.
And they had cut all cops.
Programs to zero and first responders for that -- stats and what they did.
To 0% so the worst things that we had to correct where he knew we would correct them and still -- within our three trillion dollar budget resolution.
Pretty good job by fiscally disciplined.
